Delta Schools To Get Anti-Trafficking Vanguards

To deepen the fight against human trafficking, especially the prevention aspect of the fight, the Schools Anti-Trafficking Education and Advocacy Project (STEAP) is to inaugurate Anti-Human Trafficking and Violence Against Persons Vanguards in Delta public schools.

The director general, National Agency for the Trafficking In Persons (NAPTIP), Prof. Fatima Waziri-Azi, disclosed this at a stakeholders’ workshop for validation of the baseline report on human trafficking at the weekend in Asaba.

Represented by the director, intelligence, research and programme department of the agency, Mr Josiah Emerole, he said the workshop was on the auspices of STEAP.

He said the fight against human trafficking should be collective to ensure victory and it’s kicked out of the state through.

He added that with the exposition and full knowledge of their operations, the younger generation would resist their offers and promises.


“The fight is not that of the federal or state governments alone but for everyone because a child that is trafficked belongs to a family, community and the state,” he said.
